Values and ethos
Our Co-operative Values
Self-help – we help people to help themselves to be independent and approach challenges positively.
Self-responsibility – we instill confidence in our learners, encourage them to be responsible members of society and develop a strong commitment to their own learning.
Democracy – we give our members a say in the way we run our school.
Equality – the College is open to all. We do not select our students and encourage everyone to participate fully in the curriculum.
Equity – we aim to ensure fairness for all. In lessons students are expected to participate, achieve their potential and ensure they support others.
Solidarity – we encourage social belonging and we believe we achieve more together than we will alone.
